Prophet Temitope Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) was conducting a church service when he suddenly felt uncomfortable, The Nation has learnt.
The popular prophet, sources said, passed away around 2am, hours after he walked to his apartment midway into the service, presumably to get some rest.
Born on June 12, 1963, Prophet TB Joshua died six days to his 58th birthday.
It was gathered that Joshua had walked out of the church to his apartment when he felt uncomfortable during the service that commenced around 6pm on Saturday.
Although it was not clear at what point he left the hall, The Nation learnt he had officiated the service for some hours before he stepped out.
His aides and members, it was gathered, thought he was going for a quick break but became anxious when he didn’t return after a long time.
The Nation gathered that when he did not return, his aides went to check on him but found him in an uncomfortable/unusual position.
A former aide and close family friend of the late cleric told The Nation close relatives and friends were protecting and consoling his wife.
